BERSERK 2 - 3DPD; dreadful
My Hero Academia 2 - Rly gud
Attack on Titan 2 - OK
BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS - Filler-hell continues

I stopped doing them because they were a decent amount of work and I was pretty sure they were going unappreciated. If you'd like to see one I can whip one up, but it's gonna take a little time b/c I don't have photoshop installed anymore. Also, the charts I preferred to use, that website shut down like a week or so ago, so going forward it's going to be hard.

Sometime soon, you boys should go watch In This Corner of the World and discuss it. I highly recommend it, it's a fantastic film. IIRC there should be a showing in HI next weekend.

https://www.funimationfilms.com/movie/inthiscorner/

Manga is also getting published stateside in the Fall too I think, and I've heard nothing but amazing things about it.
